A few years ago, we talked about the fact that people are generally surprised that you achieved worldwide fame and huge wealth at such a young age, but were able to stay grounded and stay out of trouble. Now that you’re older, when you see young celebrities who aren’t handling it so well — people like Justin Bieber — do you empathize with them?

I got to meet Jennifer Lawrence, and she is one of the most famous people in the f—king world, and could not have been nicer. It’s in you or it isn’t in you. And basically, we are in an industry which facilitates and enables people to be d—-kheads if they want to be, and actually sometimes rewards it. The crazier you are, the more attention you get, or the more leeway you’re granted.”
